Thanksgiving Message

As we enter the 2016 holiday season, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a safe and bountiful Thanksgiving holiday and thank each and every member of the Family Partnership Charter School community for all the things that you do so freely and with such energy, enthusiasm, and indomitable spirit. These actions (big or small) make a positive difference in the lives of all of our students and is truly what makes FPCS such a wonderful place to work and go to school. Your collective effort to streamlining for continuous improvement have helped Family Partnership evolve and grow into a true school of choice.


To the Anchorage School District: Thank you for all of the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to support Family Partnership Charter School. Your embrace and understanding of our unique program needs; and willingness to see them as opportunities rather than challenges has truly benefited our students and helped us feel like we matter.


To the FPCS Administrative & Business Office Staff: Thank you for all your hard work. Our school wouldn't be the same without your "can do" attitude and focus on providing service with a smile.


To the FPCS Faculty: Thank you for all the time and effort you put into making our school so special. I know that change can be challenging and sometimes overwhelming. Thank you for showing courage, flexibility, and willingness to adjust your sails and to focus first on what is best for our school and our students has righted our course and positioned us for an even brighter future.


To our FPCS Families: Thank you for choosing Family Partnership Charter School. I am so happy you are here and humbled by the trust you placed in us. Family Partnership realizes that we are not the only correspondence/charter school out there and are 100% committed to being there to support you in your homeschooling efforts.


Thank you for making your child's education a top priority and for encouraging them to do the best they can. Each time you sit down with your child to read a book, explore new topics, and do homework, you reinforce the importance of school and learning.


I am grateful be associated with families, staff, faculty at Family Partnership, and the Anchorage School District. Thank you for your hard work, support, and understanding. There is no place that I'd rather be.


Sincerely,

Deanne Carroll
